Gu9udan's Project: Extreme School Trip

[OPs thoughts]
There will be 5 episodes in total! It was filmed a while ago already, for their 100th day since their debut and before Miss Me? promotions, so both Mina and Sejeong are there.

Different teams go through various tasks (guessing games, paraglider...) in Jeju, with a little bit of trolling from the PD team each time. The episodes should have been a little bit longer, as the editing goes from one scene to the other too fast (especially the bravery task in the "haunted place") but otherwise it's fun and you'll get a good glimpse of their personnalities!

PS: don't put it on too loud, they're the screaming type lol.

Mods, can we have a Gu9udan tag, pretty please?

S.E.S. to drop a new single on Monday

Hit 90's girl group S.E.S. will return to the K-pop scene after a 14-year hiatus with a new song, its agency said on Wednesday. The South Korean dance-pop trio, with members Bada, Eugene and Shu, will drop single "Love [Story]" on Monday, the band's management S.M. Entertainment said in a press release. The new song's release date, Nov. 28, was the day S.E.S debuted 19 years ago.

"Love [Story]" is a remix of S.E.S.' past hit "Love," the title song for its third full-length album released on Oct. 29, 1999. The song was composed and written by S.M. Entertainment's hit producer and songwriter Yoo Young-jin, who has created songs for many hit S.M. artists such as H.O.T., BoA and TVXQ.

The new single is part of S.E.S.' comeback project "Remember," which will kick off on S.M. Entertainment's digital music streaming channel Station. The group will also hold its own concert, called "Remember, the Day," as part of the project, at Sejong University in eastern Seoul on Nov. 30 and 31. After the concert, S.E.S. will roll out a special album on Jan. 2, 2017.

Since its debut in 1997 with the LP "I'm Your Girl," S.E.S. gained fast popularity among K-pop fans until its disbandment in 2002. With its biggest rival Fin.K.L, which debuted in 1998, S.E.S. emerged as one of the key first generation K-pop idol groups, along with boy bands H.O.T., Sechs Kies, Shinhwa.

Chanel Continues to Target Korea with New Brand Ambassador

Chanel is pulling out all the stops when it comes to bringing onboard international stars to front its brand. From the likes of French style icon Caroline de Maigret to fresh faces like Lily-Rose Depp and Willow Smith, Chanel has maintained an impressive array of taste markers. It’s latest addition: Korean pop uber-star G-Dragon.

In his most recent stint for Chanel (you may recall that he was part of the house’s F/W 2015 casino-themed couture show), G-Dragon appears in a series of Polaroids, spotlighting the two-tone derby shoes from Chanel's 2016 Cruise collection.

I don't know what it means to be "ambassador of the House", but he's been sitting front row and getting free stuff for years continue on, I guess. And that 2014 Chanel/Paris hair will forever be one of my favs.

The release date for the collaborative project has yet to be announced.
